I'm in Kent and the number of attractive new models that join here is quite scarce. Even then those that do, appear to do little to improve their portfolios which largely stay untouched. Who here has a different experience

Where wages are low and girls are particularly attractive......where ever that might be As for Kent...I know from experience that Kent has its fair share of attractive girls but not models on sites like this...don't know why. I suspect you'd have more luck on FB.....or....giving out business cards in pubs, clubs and shopping centres.

I guess you might indeed have some success that way. You're also likely to get some distinctly odd looks I'm not moaning or planning on a move just yet..its just something Ive observed over many months.

In simple terms places with concentrations of young people, or what we traditionally call cities.
London, Manchester, Sheffield/Leeds, Birmingham come to mind .....
Some towns do better where there are good concentrations of impoverished students....

In the middle of the country is best, simple. Birmingham area really. Puts more models within easy reach, whether is you or the model travelling. Not only have you got the second largest urban conurbation right on your doorstep (Birmingham and the Black Country), but also within very easy travelling distance of London, Manchester, Bristol, Liverpool, Nottingham, Sheffield, Leeds etc, with great motorway and train access. Plus living and operating costs are much lower than in the south east of the UK. No brainer really.

Nottingham is very good. Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire + Yorkshire within very easy travelling distance for example. Oh and Birmingham too - to name just a few ! Many other regions. Plenty of positive, pro-active models. No complaints over here !

It was the only way before sites like this!! Worked well!!

Another approach might be to team up with an appropriate female who is up for being a talent scout on your behalf. Just make sure you are on the same page as what constitutes a potential model!!

Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire are probably where I go for 90% of my shoots.

If we are going international then I would have to say Czech Republic. So many nice girls there I would like to shoot!

Was in Palma a few weeks ago and have to say most of the girls would make good models (like 50-60%!)..... unlike Plymouth where despite having a large student population lacks quality models.

I have to agree if it's glamour, and Europe's Finest, then eastern Europe, whether that's Hungary, Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania or Latvia.

Tall girls, no tatts or lopside implants.

In response to the title of the thread .... London

and that has nothing to do with where the most or prettiest girls live. ..... that's where the most work is likely to be
